5 Tricks for Staying Safely No-Contact During Your Move to Tulsa

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, Oil Capitol Relocation 

For a few months, everyone remained indoors and put off their plans - plans for moving, especially. Typically, moving requires a great deal of contact with individuals outside your household and requires some travel. But it is possible to only put off plans for so long. The great news is that it is feasible to get everything you need and move without exposing your household to disease threat. With a few effective planning techniques, you can keep your move contact-free and still go over all your bases.

This is a short, helpful guide of strategies to carry out a household move with virus safety and social distancing.

1. Before the Move: Virtual 3D Tours

Instead of going to a property for purchase or rent, go on a online tour. Prioritize properties with a vivid photo tour or possibly a 3d walk-through that gives you a genuine sense of the area using high-detail visuals. Online tours employ 360 photography to enable you to move from room to room in the home and take a look around through click-dragging the frame.

2. Moving Supplies: Purchase Ahead for No-Contact Pickup or Delivery

For all the cartons, crating, packing paper, along with dish packs you may need for the move, order ahead. Online or telephone purchases allows a local moving company in Tulsa or retailer to prepare your packing material. You may want to stop by and get the cartons curbside, with a no-contact staff to load up your trunk. This can be a less risky option to shopping for boxes at a store.

3. Moving Services: No-Contact Strategies

Additionally, you will want a handful of approaches for moving without direct contact with your professional movers in Tulsa.


Look for a moving company in Tulsa that provides a no-contact consultation. A lot can look at the overall size and contents of your household by using a quick video tour hosted on your cell phone. Easily change the camera around in the course of a Zoom video chat (or similar program) to get a quotation without having an in-person walkthrough of the house.

Packing Service

The safest approach to pack while in pandemic conditions is to pack yourself. For people who can't or do not want to pack themselves - we advise closing in a single area or suite while the packing team works in specific areas to enable the maximum social distancing.

Plan for No-Contact Truck Loading & Unloading

Likewise, it is possible to keep a safe and secure distance once it is time to load your cartons into, and after that off, the moving truck. Whether you are driving yourself or hiring a moving company in Tulsa, you should be present when the boxes are loaded for transport but can be socially distant from the moving crew. Remember to put on your mask, too.

Elbow Bump Friendliness

When it's time to handshake, suggest a friendly elbow-bump as an alternative.

4. Travel: Pack and Isolate

When traveling, make sure to minimize your contact with other people and with public environments.

Packed Cooler along with Drive-Thru Food

Skip the eating places this time around. As an alternative, prepare a cooler of sodas and snacks along with sandwiches.

Parks and Rest Stops

When you need to stretch your legs, look for a wide open grassy place instead of a convenience store. Stop at public rest-stops with fields and picnic benches or look for community parks. You can also stop by a roadside field. All are better when compared with populated spots.

Car-Camping or Do-it-yourself Clean Motel Room

Motels can be a potential risk. Should you be moving in good weather with camping supplies, consider car-camping as opposed to stopping in a hotel. Should you prefer a motel break, bring clean sheets and also cleaning supplies. Quickly sanitize the room using surface cleanser and lay clean sheets over all the pieces of furniture. It is possible to separate more using a packed bedroll.

Curbside Pickup Supplies

If you ever need supplies along the route, use your mobile phone to arrange for curbside pickup. On the road, just call in your order a minimum of a half-hour prior to when you're going to be pulling into town. This will save you the risk of visiting convenience stores along with other places as you go along.

5. At the New Residence: Isolate for Two Weeks of Unpacking

Lastly, give some thought to scheduling 14 days of total isolation in the new home right after arriving. When it is just you and the boxes, this can be the perfect time for you to unpack and helps to ensure that should you be passive carriers, that any invisible virus can fully run its course.
